Late Summer in Seasonal yoga

Late Summer is a great time in our Seasonal Yoga practice.

There is a feeling of heaviness in nature.

  • Examine the quality of your food and relationships.
  • Chew your food well.
  • Start something that gives you satisfaction
  • Include activities to bring you closer to the earth.

Reading

I've just finished reading this.

In this book on meditation, the reader is guided step-by-step on the journey towards inner peace. Practical examples and easy-to-do-exercises enrich the reading experience. It also explains the difference between mindfulness and meditation.

Totally recommend.

Summer timetable

We are currently running mixed Yin and Hatha classes week about (alternate weeks) on a Wednesday.

These classes are in Zilda Holistic Therapies in Dunfermline on a Wednesday at 6.30pm.

Tuesday's classes are the same.  Mixed chilled out Hatha in person and on Zoom.

Yin Yoga

Who should do Yin Yoga?

Yin is ideal for anyone who wants to engage in a quiet, reflective practice that involves holding passive poses for longer periods. Typically 4 to 5 mins in my classes.

It’s great to help you relax and leave the outside world behind for an hour. Think slow, low, chill, melting down into your mat.

Just take 5

Sometimes we just need to take a breathe.  Take a moment.  Something to turn down the noise and to step back from feeling we are always on and always doing something.

  • Find a quite place
  • Turn off your phone
  • Close your eyes
  • Focus on your breathe
  • Just take 5

Seniors and yoga

You are never too late to take up yoga.  I took it up in my 50's.

We are all living longer these days and one thing you can do to help yourself stay mobile is take up a yoga practice.

  • Yoga improves balance and stability
  • Yoga improves flexibility and joint health
  • Yoga Improves respiration
  • Yoga reduces anxiety
  • Yoga reduces high blood pressure

Spring in Seasonal yoga

Spring is a great time in our Seasonal Yoga practice.

It's time for some changes..

  • Get outside and feel the sun against your face.
  • Laugh.  Hang out with people who make you laugh.
  • Ditch stuff that you are not happy with!
  • Make plans for the rest of the year.

Coming in to the room at the start of our yoga practice

I have been taking extra time at the start of a class to bring students in to the room.

How do we do this?  We spend a few minutes sitting or standing and we just focus on our breathe.  We let the choppy waters of the mind settle.

Just allowing all the noise and commotion of the day / week to dissipate into the background.  And allowing ourselves, giving ourselves permission even, to feel safe and secure for the duration of the class.

Please get in touch with your thoughts on this.  Is this important to you?  Does this make your practice better?
